Expertise and Caring in Aesthetic and Anti-Aging Medicine.
If you or a loved one is a migraine sufferer, you know the frustrating cycle that can take control of your life: avoiding migraine “triggers;” missing out on activities; and deciding on pain-killers, sometimes resorting to a narcotic injection at the hospital.
Now, migraine relief can last for 3 months or more at a time, with the administration of BOTOX*.
Administering BOTOX for therapeutic applications, such as migraine treatment, requires advanced training, and special techniques are used to achieve optimal results. The optimal location, depth and quantity of injections are determined for each individual patient. This way, the muscles that trigger your particular migraines are specifically targeted.
Often, after treatment with BOTOX, the patient can expect at least 3 months migraine-free without any need for additional migraine medications*. However, Dr. De Pieri likes to use as little medication as possible, so he will ask you to return for reassessment 1 week post treatment. If necessary, he can adjust the dose at this visit for your particular needs.
Most extended medical plans provide majority coverage when patients submit a letter from a recognized physician trained in this treatment.
